Moroccan meatball tagine

We all love meatballs but we’ve had more than enough pasta recently so thought I’d transform them into a tagine and dish up with couscous. My boys aren’t massive fans of lamb mince and I’m not particularly keen on the amount of fat in it, so I’ve replaced the lamb with lean pork mince. It…

Crispy shredded pork + pancakes

I’m always on the look out for ways of turning those naughty Friday night takeaways into a tasty healthy fakeaway !  Crispy duck and pancakes is such a favourite of ours but the fat content is just ridiculous and I always feel yukky after and regret eating it (I blame the medication!) so I wanted…

pork, sweet chilli + apple burgers

This is a fab family dinner, but without the naughtiness of a full on beef burger. These always go down very well in our house served with a side of sweet potato oven baked wedges/chips and a good homemade slaw. Enjoy, Mrs H x Serves 4, smart points 9 Ingredients 400g Pack of lean pork…

Not your normal Sunday evening recipe,  but I had kinda messed up with our plans this weekend and had 2 pork fillets that needed to be eaten today. Just don’t tell the boys it is national Yorkshire Pudding day as they will be gutted! Bring on this healthy makeover of a rendang. Even though it…

lighter swedish meatballs + gravy

I fell in love with these little beauties when I first visited Sweden with work years ago, but never attempted to make them until now.  Of course this is a healthier, lower fat version but still as tasty and easy to make. Best of all we don’t have to visit IKEA anymore for our meatball…

pulled pork enchiladas

Meals in the week have to be well planned and snappy due to work, endless boys’ activities and generally mum being a taxi! This is one of those dishes that makes you feel very smug as all the hard work is done by the slow cooker during the day and leaves you just to assemble the…
